A shipyard complex that used to be the symbol of Venetian naval supremacy and economic power. Its construction began in the 12th century and continued into the following centuries up to the 16th. There are two Greek lions at the side of the gate. Today, the Arsenal is a venue for many cultural activities. No surprise, the Historical Naval Museum is here.
